Serves: 8
Time: 120 minutes

INGREDIENTS: 
2 cups, Christmas pudding
4 egg whites, room temp
1 cup caster sugar
2 cups, fresh cherries
4 red plums, quartered
2 cups, vanilla yoghurt
1 tsp vanilla bean extract
mint

METHOD:

  1. Preheat oven to 120c. In a clean and dry mixing bowl, add the egg whites and beat till soft peaks form. Whilst still beating, slowly add the sugar in one tablespoon at a time. Stop beating once the meringue mixture is thick and glossy. You will be able to tell once it is done when you can no longer feel the sugar granules in the mix.
  2. On some baking paper, spread out the meringue in a rectangular shape. Sporadically place the pudding over the mixture. Place in the oven for 80 minutes. Once finished cooking, turn the oven off and keep the oven shut for at least an hour. This will ensure the pavlova doesn't sink. 
  3. Place the yoghurt and vanilla in a mixer and beat till well combined. Top the pavlova with the yoghurt, cherries, plums and fresh mint. Serve immediately.
